A Big Year for the Blue Jeans Ball!

By Dylan Menguy February 10, 2015

The Capital Area Food Bank is gearing up for its 12th Annual Blue Jeans Ball, which will take place on Sunday, April 26 from 6 to 10 PM at the brand new Marriott Marquis Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C.  With an impressive array of restaurants offering up their culinary creations and a bevy of enticing auction items for guests to bid on, this year is shaping up to be the best ever!

Sharply dressed in fashionable denim, guests come in droves to dance the night away and enjoy the best of the region’s thriving culinary scene, including canapés, sweets and cocktails prepared by the best chefs and restaurateurs.  This is one of the few events of its kind in the region, where attendees can ditch their ball gown and tuxedo in favor of their best pair of jeans, all BJB (169) with drop shadowwhile shedding light on the issue of hunger in the region.  Get a sneak peak at the restaurants we’ve got lined up for you here.  

This is a special year, as we will be recognizing the Bedford Falls Foundation, a private charitable trust established by Bill and Joanne Conway in 1997, for their steadfast support of the food bank’s mission.  Mr. and Mrs. Conway, through the Bedford Falls Foundation, have supported our work through their generosity since 2000.  Mr. Conway, who is a founding partner of the Carlyle Group, will attend on behalf of the Foundation.

So, mark your calendars for April 26, and register today for the chance to be part of this historically sold-out affair!  We can’t wait to share this special evening with you.
